8 hours later...

1 Spring Rabbit's foot: 100 chocolates
1 set Spring Robes: 50 chocolates
1 bunch of Spring flowers: 50 chocolates
Chocoholic achievement: 100 chocolates

Finding the Spring Rabbit's foot immediately after you pay the vendor for it? priiiiiceless!!

310 chocolates later, elegant dress x 2, tuxedo shirt x4 and tuxedo pants x 6 a tour around the deserts of Azeroth and a very grueling hour searching for females who seemed to all be hiding (blood elves aside):

My favourite item is the Spring Circlet. That gem will sit in my bank for a long, long time. So I guess it was worth it?

Naxx Cleared!

In our guild first (well, guild + 1 more) we cleared Naxx in one lockout! I love when an achievement feels like an achievement and this was a shining moment for us.

I found the fights pretty intense but very fun as a hunter. There was an "oh shit" moment when I found myself planted directly behind Sapphirion's swishing tail - whoops! That fight isn't all that SV friendly as you are constantly repositioning yourself running from blizzards and frantically searching for an ice block; Sniper Training doesn't get much of a chance to proc. For Kel'thuzad, once you fight a sweet spot that is not near anyone else you are golden.

I got Claymore of Ancient Power from Four Horsemen last night which made me very happy. A pink sword?! Holler.

Passive Aggressive Guild LF1M Naxx:

Must begin by appearing to know their class in order to give us a false sense of security;

Must claim to know boss encounters;

Must proceed to ignore all boss mechanics including but not limited to:

1.       Standing in place when injected on Grobbulous, killing healers;

2.       AoE'ing Zombie Chow when decimate is not active; and

3.       Standing in one place on Thaddius regardless of charge.

Must type nonsensically in chat while others are explaining raid strategies.

Rolling on all gear is a must and winning 75% of said rolls, including shards, would be an asset.



(There, I've qq'd about it – I can move on.)

Turns out it was worth it

25g later and Thunderbluff FTW! This might be the most blah of all the Horde doublets, but I couldn't not buy it!

10/25 Valiant Seals today :)

Me Want

Holy Hot Damn - I thought that the Argent Tournament was just all mounts and tabards and feeling all Knighty...but the Staff of Feral Furies actually gives me something to grind for. Once for my hunter and again for my druid. :)

Bless you Blizzard for making weapons on Taurens look so hilariously oversized, bless you!

I like the shirts you can buy from the souvenier vendor, however, you can't see them with your tabard and gear. At 25g you'll have to decide if its worth it to know what faction you are sporting without others seeing your colours.

Today I should be getting to the Argent Valour acheivement. Yay!

A hunting I will Go

How did I miss this change? The Nagrand Nesingwary quests have been shortened to 12 kills as opposed to 30 kills?

(My 6 alts who haven't been there sing in harmony)

Here it is: Patch 3.1!

Things I’m excited for.

Dual specs (obvs). I respecced my druid tank to resto just to see if I liked healing before I laid down the gold. It’s fine and I think that I’m okay to go ahead with it. I still tend to freak out and smash at random buttons. I will more thank likely possibly my priest, who I have been power levelling for the past two weeks. My hunter will stay SV.

Black Arrow. It will be cool to have a DoT shot that isn’t serpent sting. It will make me feel special, and when hunters are a dime/dozen anything helps.

Argent Tournament. Just to find out what the heck it is.

Watching the Ulduar cinematic again. Any time Thrall leaves Ogrimmar you know it’s serious biz. It’s pretty fun and the voice acting for Bronzebeard somehow isn’t quite as atrocious as the Halls of Stone event (blech!). Also, Rhonin could sound a teensy bit more manly, but that’s just the lorenerd in me.

Waiting for the servers to go online...

Warcraft Cupcakes!

I made these cupcakes for a little guild gathering on the weekend. They are chocolate chocolate chip and were quite delicious.

For the symbols, I just used a horde template and cut them out of red fondant. The hearthstones are white chocolate with a little blue fondant to make the swirl. I also dusted them with some iridescent sparkles to make 'em special. The Zug Zug's are just some piped chocolate.

They were a lot of fun to make!
